Dean Donald J. Guter had the pleasure of hosting lunch on May 29 for STCL alums Jacob R. Franklin ’13, Andrew M. Wagnon ’13, Thomas A. Horton ’13, and Aaron Dobbs ’05, of Ford+Bergner, who were honored as first-time members of the Law Firm Challenge club. The firm also recently celebrated its fifteenth anniversary and relocation to the landmark Bank of America Center in downtown Houston.
“Our firm has the largest number of South Texas grads practicing estate and trust litigation,” Aaron noted during the luncheon. Recently named by Texas Monthly as a 2014 Rising Star in estate and trust litigation, Aaron also supports the College by serving on our Young Alumni Council.
Ford+Bergner is the forty-ninth organization to have met the Law Firm Challenge by achieving 100 percent participation in alumni giving to the College. The program is open not only to law firms, but also to law offices, in-house legal departments, and government offices with three or more South Texas alumni who make a donation to the College within a given year.
